Aranceles y petróleo dominarán los temas en la cumbre del G20 en Osaka / Tariffs and oil will dominate the issues at the G20 summit in Osaka

"Given the assault of Trump and the growing band of 'strong men' as leaders, there is a risk of a return to the economic spheres of influence prior to the Second World War that consist of America versus or China versus Europe. This increases the risk of global recession and conflict," he said.

Why women must work

Research by Nick Bloom, James Liang, John Roberts and Zhichun Jenny Ying on Ctrip in China showed a 13.5 per cent rise in worker productivity through work from home policies as employees completed their full shift of work, thus saving commute time. This translates to about an extra day of work every week. With improvements in digital and mobile technology, companies can consider this as a viable option to improve output and performance of their teams. A combination of working from home and working from the office can allow the employees flexibility while also increase productivity.
